Mountain Lodge Horse Back Riding in the Snow

Laura and Skip enjoy the snow.

Hmmmm…… The weather people call for an October total of 2.9 inches of snow for our area. We got that three weeks ago, and it disappeared the next morning, as October snow should. The aspens still claim October as theirs; time to show off their golden leaves.

Oops! Wait a minute – we got a good eight more inches last night, and another six inches falling today!

The dogs are delighted! The older horses are playing like foals! The goats are making snow angels and laughing!

And the guests riding in the snow? Just look at their faces…

Mountain Lodge Horse back Riding: Stacy and Kevin:

This Sure Ain't Houston Horse back Riding Y'all!

Tracy (from Houston!) says that riding in the snow is spectacular. I think that Laura (from Cleveland) agrees. Not too sure what Texan Kevin (also from Houston) thinks, but his horse, Jack is a happy fella! At lunch Kevin said it was a great ride…

Cowboy Victor was born and raised up here – he’s just cold!
